Created in devotion to Southern Draw owner Robert Holt’s wife Sharon, this cigar was created with an inherent expectation of excellence, and in my opinion it achieves that mark to a pretty high degree.

This cigar is beautifully constructed for a Connecticut, only showing a few minor flaws, none of which affected the cigar in a negative way. It’s hard for me to complain about this, but the draw on this smoke was simply too loose and airy. I certainly prefer this over a tight draw, but it was still not favorable in my opinion. Nonetheless, smoke production was minimally affected by the airy draw, so all things considered, I was pretty pleased.

The flavor of this cigar was very pleasant, offering up a consistent tangy and sweet combination that holds consistent through the entirety of the cigar, which is right in my wheelhouse. It actually makes it one of my Favorite light shade Connecticut cigars to date.

$9.50 is what you will pay for this toro, which certainly makes worth getting your hands on, and is one that I think can be enjoyed by a wide spectrum of smoker due to its great balance and one that isn't too overwhelming.

You can get your hands on this cigar for just around $8.00 which makes it a pretty damn good deal. There isn’t anything challenging about this cigar, so in terms of recommendation, but really feel there are some out there that may find this cigar to not be in their wheelhouse. If you do grab one, do yourself a favor… Drink it in the morning with a good cup of coffee. You won't regret it.
